What I liked:

The beach club area of the resort is beautiful, spending time here was the highlight of my stay.

What the hotel could do better:

>There were too few people on staff who spoke or understood English. Communication was a constant challenge.

>Activities around the resort were limited or too difficult to actually do. I wanted to do the "Day trip to Midilli Island" but that required catching a public ferry at 7:30, paying unspecified fees on the boat and at immigration - and then no real agenda once I would have arrived. Would have loved more support from the resort team to actually get out and do something.

>The beach club restaurant's a la carte menu looked appealing, but only 4-5 items were ever available on a menu of 40-50 options.

>Wireless internet was supposed to be accessible throughout the resort, but it was only a weak connection in a just few places.

Hotel Description

Once more or less the sole province of movie villains, the luxurious seclusion of island living has become much more widely accessible, with eco-resorts around the world boasting of isolation and privacy. But precious few offer the real thing, which is why it’s so refreshing to discover a place like Kalem Island Oliviera Resort, which has the distinction of being the only resort — and the only habitation, period — on tiny Kalem Island, just off Turkey’s Aegean coast. Reachable by boat from Bademli Village — or, more swashbucklingly, by seaplane from Istanbul — Oliviera offers a welcome alternative to the ordinary beach bungalow experience.

With an entire island to work with, Oliviera can afford to indulge in a little sprawl. Its four guest houses are set back from the beach, nestled amidst the lush greenery that covers the island, and each one offers a different take on upscale Mediterranean living that strikes a balance between East and West — perfect for a hotel situated between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of Lesbos. If you’re craving a bit of rustic opulence, the seven spacious guest rooms of the chateau lend some historical gravitas, while the low-slung Palm house offsets its slightly more modest interiors with a courtyard garden.

While the guest rooms succeed at being distinctive in their own ways, the beachfront scene takes its cues from the tropics. From dockside massages to cocktails at the Marina Lounge, there’s no shortage of sun-soaked diversions. At night, leave your cabana behind for fresh shellfish on the sea-view terrace, and remind yourself why you left the mainland in the first place.

Please note: Kalem Island Oliviera Resort is open seasonally from mid-May through late October.

How to get there: Kalem Island is located between Garip Island and Bademli Village, 450 meters from the mainland. The resort is 85 km from Edremit Airport and 130 km from Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport. Boat rides to the resort depart from Bademli Village, where free parking is available. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com for assistance arranging transfers.
